Thanks for the welcome back BlitzGirl and yappo.
And thanks to Aluisio for the lion cake.
I will get around to doing a proper ketchup of the last 40 or 50 or 80 pages, but not tonip.
A few things I noticed were;
BltzGirl at over 4000 posts (Go Bgirl, Go.).
There's evidently a new "Acts of the Clerics" I've missed (sorry Jose).
Did I see Aluisio put up a new story too?
I saw that BytEfLUSh showed up for a minute, too. (Hey guy.)
There seems to a rash of "brainslugs" running around. (Heck I saw mention of them in the Wiki.)
TheMinim seems to be trying to OTTify the entire OtherComic archive. This needs investigation.
And waveney's publishing a new Time After Time story. I need to check that out too.
One other thing my research lead me to. I wanted to find out how long it took me to get out of mod-queue by comparing the time-stamp of my 'first-post' (as listed on the page) vs. the time-stamp of the e-mail I got telling me I was published.
The fun part of going back to that page (NP 437 - Heretic date: Sun Apr 28, 2013) was the "Roll Call" of TimeWaiters on that page (In order of 1st post on page [with multiples noted] (bonuses: pope & goat; who got the "Ongs" and their phraseOng; and a buffyhat.))
Pikrass [x3] [page pope as of 5-Nov-13]
buffygirl [x5] [4th post has Eternal Density's "River-hat"]
AluisioASG [x2] [page goat as of 5-Nov-13]
Valarya [Ong for newpix: 955 / "Goodbyong."]
pelrigg [1st post]
AK49BWL [Ong for newpix: 956 / "What, no GONG?"]
Just for fun: Do a "Roll Call" for the page with your first post to the OTT. (whether that was your first post to xkcd-fora or just to the OTT.) It might be kind of fun.
